    @rhtyd my point is that, even if its run on KVM, this functionality wont be covered with
existing tests. I agree to your point. It was just that I had xen tests available and another
run on KVM would take huge amount of effort from my side and at the end wont test the new
functionality.
    
    Thanks for the email. will go through.
    
    I went through the commits on #1692. It has two bug fixes(CLOUDSTACK-9515, CLOUDSTACK-9533)
and some test fixes. I dont see why its a blocker for commits to master. (probably the mail
has some context. will go through)
